Kanye West Comes for Ariana Grande Amid Feud With Drake
The rapper took a break from attack Drake on Twitter Friday to take aim at the "Imagine" singer instead. West, 41, accused Grande of minimizing his mental health issues and his beef with Drake "to promote a song."
"All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you're ready to really make sure everyone's ok don't use me or this moment to promote a song," he tweeted.
His message was in response to one Grande posted Thursday night, at the peak of the West-Drake drama. She joked that "grown men arguing online" should not distract fans from the release of her and Miley Cyrus' new songs. West went on to say that he knew Grande, 25, "said this to be cool and didn't mean no harm," but added that he still felt slighted.
"No one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful," he said.
Grande responded, making it clear to West that she didn't need him or his feud with Drake to promote her new single. She wished him well and admitted that while she was joking, her comment "was probably insensitive."
"with all dues respect, I don't need to use anyone to promote anything. period. i was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women. it was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. i apologize if i was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today," she tweeted.
The pop star then added, "las thing. stop weaponizing mental health. everyone."
West did not call out Cyrus, who also took a jab at him on Twitter Thursday night.
